February, as we know, is the Love month! As we celebrate Valentine’s day, it would be great to give our hearts an exercise in generosity and compassion as we reach out to our needy brethren. On February 13, 2016 (Saturday), The American Chamber of Commerce – Cebu Chapter, together with member company Savvysherpa, is going to commend genuine love through an outreach program at Gasa sa Gugma, 10:00-11:30 in the morning.

Gasa sa Gugma - a place that the dying, aged, and abandoned destitute calls “home” is located in Cabantan Street, Mabolo, Cebu City. This non-profit organization thrives on donations, and is managed by the Missionaries of Charity, Sisters of Mother Teresa, whose sole purpose is to aid the least fortunate.

Through this outreach program, we endeavor to convey joy by giving gifts and donations and sharing our valuable time with the confined elderly. Also, Gasa sa Gugma welcomes any used clothing donations that could still be of good use. They are going to relay these to other needy charitable organizations connected with them.

Please let us know if you would like to take part in this outreach program. You may contact the Secretariat thru cebuamcham@yahoo.com or call 232-2373; 316-1093; or 0917-3231972

Let us altogether spread the love on Valentine’s!

Love is not patronizing and charity isn't about pity, it is about love. Charity and love are the same – with charity you give love, so don't just give money but reach out your hand instead.” - Mother Teresa
